BlackBerry Push Service Now Available to All Developers

Comments

RIM have announced that they are now offering the BlackBerry Push Service to all BlackBerry developers. This news seems strange in that I thought the Push APIs were already available, but apparently they are now fully public.

The BlackBerry Push Service has two options: BlackBerry Push Essentials and BlackBerry Push Plus. BlackBerry Push Essentials is a free service that developers can incorporate into their applications and allows them to push content to their customers immediately. BlackBerry Push Plus has a free and paid tier that provides developers with notification that their push has been delivered. If a content provider needs to get information to someone, they can tell if the target device has received the push.
